As you guys may already know, I'm currently testing two 3D plasma TVs (from Samsung and Panasonic) for the upcoming Aug/Sept 2010 issue of CANADA HiFi.
It couldn't have happened at a better time, but a few days ago the first 3D games were released for the PS3 for download from the PlayStation network. They include WipEout HD, Super Stardust HD, MotoStorm Pacific Rift (playable demo) and PAIN (add-on).
From all the content I've seen so far (which really isn't all that much), computer animated movies (like Astro Boy) and video games offer the most added value in the new 3D format.
The 3D effect elevates the enjoyment of video games in particular to a whole new level! I've always been a big fan of car racing games and MotoStorm Pacific Rift in 3D looks just incredible. This was an amazing game in 2D, but in 3D there is a whole new depth to the realism, bring it that much closer to the real thing.
Super Stardust HD on the other hand is a rather simple game, with simple graphics. However the 3D effect is used very cleverly in this game and again raises the enjoyment of this game to a new height.
If this is what the future of video gaming holds... I AM SO IN!
I've been watching coverage of the E3 (video game show) on TV for the last couple of games and yesterday Sony announced a whole slew of 3D games coming out later this year. The two of particular interest to me are Killzone 3 and Gran Turismo 5.
Any thoughts from you guys on gaming in 3D?
